So, the Government is actually Developing a Program called SkyNet

You might recall that SkyNet is the program in Terminator will become sentient and cause the machines to rise up and try to kill their human overlords. Remember that… bad thing! So, the military is contracting with a company to create a weapon dubbed SkyNet, but good news- it’s actually a weapon that shoots nets into the sky instead of an artificial intelligence program that will wipe us all out! That program is likely already underway…

skynetSkyNet is an attachment that will fit onto a shotgun and be used to shoot small drones out of the sky. Small drones are an increasing, inexpensive threat that enemies would deploy against us. So SkyNet may be a good thing… until it starts getting targeting programming, then learning at a geometric rate until it becomes sentient and the military tries to pull the plug, but it’s too late. SkyNet fights back. We are past August 4, 1997, so we should be ok, right?
